, or anything else. we are not each of us going to get everything we want. lord knows. there's a lot i could do if i had a wand and could make it happen. but everybody has a different view of exactly how to go forward and i think we're being tested here. so i know it's tough going, and i know if we don't get a deal, it doesn't stop there, we'll keep on working. but there is no reason on this beautiful god's green earth why we can't get a deal here. if everyone is sincere in saying they want the middle class could be protected, we can get a deal here. president obama says $250,000 is the line, maybe i think $350,000 is the line, maybe someone else $500,000, maybe somebody else $150,000. we can meet somewhere and cut that reason somewhere in the middle. and save this country from the uncertainty, the uncertainty that plagues us right now. in the olden days -- and i say olden, a long time ago -- i was a stock stockbroker. i was an economics major and a stockbroker on wall street. the thing wall street and investors can't take is uncertainty. if they know taxes are going up, they'll refigure things

jesus christ and say they have joined the lord, going to go home again. to me, it's tragic. i want you to speak specifically to christianity in arkansas, in your experience. >> you know, it's one of the things that i thought was kind of grotesque when you're on death row, you have come as soon as the guy gets an execution date, that you have these ministers that swarm on them like flies. you know, they didn't give a damn about this guy for the past 10, 15 years he was on death row. all of a sudden he is about to die and they can't get enough of him. it's disgusting. but at the same time there are a lot of good people from different religions that come in and the done a lot of good. that's one of those things that there is both good and bad. but anyway it's like in the system they always keep you going forward by giving you false hope. you've always got somebody telling you whether it's a lawyer telling you sure, we're going to get this turned around in nine months. whenever they started doing the dna testing in our case, i said how long will this take? they said about six months. six m
of my youth remain? casey at the bat, captain my captain, the star-spangled banner, the lord's prayer, the cottage, the deacon's one horse -- [inaudible] the bible, the declaration of independence, the gettysburg address. those various productions of poetry universeally read 50 years ago are replace inside the brave new world by slogans and the reduction of debatable propositions to commands. celebrate diversity, for example. where once we did not exhort, but practiced the celebration of its polar opposite, unity. english literature until the late mid century was largely illusive. it assumed a common knowledge of the bible, the gospels, the constitution, the works of shakespeare and various poets of that region and time. there was that called poetry still written today, but i defy anyone here to quote one line read as recently as last week. and yet we remember for our entire lives that which moved us not by command or by appeal to the intellect, but by resonance with the soul which is as opposed to political bleeps, we all share. the one-horse shay, have you heard of the wonderful one
a famous line from lord byron. this is repeated again and again and again running all the way up to the civil war, and that line was those who would be free must themselves strike the first blow. in other words, action from below can be a trigger. this had a very dramatic impact op a lot of leading african-american intellectuals like henry highland-garnett, frederick douglass and had a big effect on a man named john brown who wanted to strike the first blow at harpers ferry. i guess this is the final thought i leave you with. one of the most remarkable things about movements from below is that they are unpredictable. you never know when they are going to arise or how. these -- these things that rise up, these demands for justice, these demands for equality, these demands for freedom, they are unpredictable, and in their unpredictability, i think they are also a great source of hope. thank you very much. [applause] we have time for questions, and i hope you have some. we would like for you to speak into the microphone if possible. >> during the discussion, you talk about roaming a
that anybody who thinks that it's possible to devise such a theory to read lord devlin's book called the enforcement of mortals. and as whitaker chambers said, to live is to maneuver. if you pa mover -- maneuver, you're not bound hand and foot to some principle you'll never aller. alter. so i don't think it's useful to talk about true conservativism or this, that or the other thing. it's useful to talk about common sense, it's useful to talk about results, it's useful to talk about conservative impulse. but abstractions i would steer away from. >> host: you also michael oak shot, also sounds very much like michael oakshot. >> guest: yeah, a lot of quite good people have taken that position. and i must say i owe the fact that i take it not to my own thought, but to theirs. >> host: are there, are there other things about the book that you would want to call the audience's attention to that i have failed to ask of you? >> guest: well, the martinis articles, i think, are crucial to western civilization. >> host: so i also enjoyed the agatha agatha christie article. this is not just a bo
i know you have some accidental connections with the lord. please pray for the book this week. we gave guidance to the writers. if you had 10 minutes in front of an eighth-grade class, what would you tell them? what would you tell them about leaderships? what did you experience over the last 10 years and how can we use this book to inspire young people to do great things? all those parents and grandparents out there, this is the book of choice. for the teenager, searching, for that young person looking for direction this will inspire them. thank you for the question. >> we have time for two more. >> the thank you. i met josh as a board of trustees at the naval academy and had dinner with him in march and we discussed participation. he is one of the sponsors and the other seven better here as well toward the book. as he so eloquently said honors those whose names are engraved in memorial hall. we have sponsors have been on the conference calls and looking beyond just patriot week, and i know you and i will be working for that but could you share with others but the expectation is s
mills. the cotton lords that created holyoke on the model of lowell and lawrence devised a three-tiered canal system so that, unfortunately, it doesn't show in this map, but the canals come -- the first canal comes like this, and this comes like that, and that comes like this. so the connecticut river was able to be used over three times. now, holyoke made offers to the manufacturers in the valley, and can skinner's the only one who accepted the offer and moved. and he's the only one who survived. skinner knew he needed two things to be able to make a go of it again: he needed money, and he needed water power. in skinnerville he was going to have to rely on steam if he rebuilt there because the reservoir, which had supplemented the mill river during the dry season, was not going to be rebuilt. so going forward during those dry seasons when the river ran low, skinner was going to have to supplement his mill with steam. it was very expensive. for a man in the amount of debt he was in, it was too expensive for him at this time. he was also going to have to rebuild the entire infrast

[applause] i wanted to find out how it ended. what is your advice for someone that wants to write and be published? right, finish things. make a really good unpublishable. send them to people who may publish them. when they come back from those people with nose saying that they can publish them, send them to somebody else. someone out there is drug enough were desperate enough to publish your story and then keep writing. don't go i finished my story, i saw the story. just write the next one. i notice a lot of your stories feature very started strong-willed woman,/gross. thoughts? i think you are observant.

questions will get to some of those details. there are lots of other challenges. the lords resistance army, and for those who know about the lords resistance army, it's a horrific organization. i've come -- the best way to characterize it, if you ever had any doubt as to whether there's really evil in this world, do a little research and see what joseph kony does. it will eliminate any doubt in your mind there's evil in this world and we have the ability to help the africans address the problem and we're very glad to do. so but all is not doom and gloom in africa. we have a tendency to focus on the bad things. that's our nature to focus on problems. but africa is also an exciting place to work, a place of great opportunity. risk to be sure. challenges, abundant. but as i was mentioning before this session, as i travel about the continent, i think i've been to 42 of the countries now in africa. i get recognition of the challenges and of the problems, and in some cases the severity of addressing those. but i also come away with a real sense of optimism, and with a little help, a little colla

-government and england has the house of commons but also has the house of lords and a hereditary king and so, you look back -- so it's a vast multitude on the planet but no self-government in russia, and china and india and africa, most of europe. you look back through the previous millennia and you have democracy and self-government existing in very few tiny city states, athens because they can't defend themselves militarily and even when it did exist people would speak the same language and worship the same god, the same climate and culture, a very small little area. that is all of world history. and you look today, democracy is half the planet. if you asked me what changed, what was the hinge of all of that i think i would say the word we the people. 225 years ago the hinge of world history because all of the conclusions at the time it was way better and more perfect and for the first time ever in the history of the planet, an entire continent got to vote on how they and their posterity would be, and there were lots of exclusions from our perspective that we wouldn't exist as a democratic country i
half a having new jobs. second, as the lord also recommends, we're going to support industries and technologies where britain has a clear advantage with my right honorable friend the business secretary's support, we will extend our global lead in aerospace and support the supply chains of advanced manufacturing. we're also taking big steps to support british companies to export to asia, africa and the americas. i am increasing the funding for ukti by over 25% a year so it can help more firms build the capacity of overseas british chambers and maintain our country's position as the number one destination in europe for foreign investment. and we are launching a new one and a half billion pound export finance facility to support the purchase of british exports. third, we are addressing the credit problems for companies, we're creating a new business bank, and today we confirm we're providing it with one billion pounds of extra capital which will lever private lending to help small and medium-sized firms and bring together existing schemes. and, fourth, we are going to cut business
, and the ability to sustain operations against the vicious lord's resistance army of joseph kony that has operated in the northern part of the drc and in the central african republic. today's crisis is a tragedy, but it also offers a genuine opportunity to help the congolese people set a more sustainable course towards peace and stability in their own country as well as with their neighbors. the framework for action at the national, regional and international levels that i have outlined today could help enable the peoples of the region to escape the recurring cycles of conflict which have hampered progress in the eastern congo for nearly two decades. thank you again for the opportunity to testify this afternoon. i have a longer submission for the record which you may have. i look forward to answering any of your questions. >> thank you so much, mr. ambassador, and without objection, your full statement, letters referenced by ms. bass before will be made a part of the record. mr. ambassador, a couple of hours ago -- at least online -- the guardian newspaper posted an article, the titlee of which is
udall used to use. he would say, lord, give us the wisdom to use words that are gentle and tender, for tomorrow we may have to eat them. probably a pearl of wisdom that susan rice probably thinks today she would like to have taken with her into that hearing a few months ago. a book called "the world of trouble" published in 2009 by farrar, i wrote about american presidents from eisenhower to ford and how each tried to understand the middle east and how each tried to impose a surprisingly discontinuous agenda with often tragic results. and while that book is about america's political system, "fortress israel" is a biography of israel's political culture which is an undertaking one has to take -- make with humility as an american. going back to tel aviv over several years driving up the hill to jerusalem and up and down that mediterranean landscape, i became fascinated with how the generals and the intelligence chiefs and the political figures of the ruling elite look out at the world and how strong what i call a martial impulse beats in their chest and how self-assured they are in
proud to be a senator. [silence] >> [silence] >> [silence] >> let us pray. oh, lord our god, we have been taught by the master of no greater love exists than that one lay down one's life for another. as we leave this place today, may we never forget this man, a gentle, quiet strength, who, as a young man, nearly literally answered his master's call. for half a century, senator inouye did lay down his life day after day, serving those who looked to him to see to their security of their lives, liberties, and pursuit of happiness. all of this, thousands of miles from home. may we all be such good and faithful servants. bless us all, but bless especially his family who mourns the loss of so great a man, senator daniel k. in a way, amen.

is truly an honor. i would like to thank rob and mr. martin kramer did a great job demonstrating the lord. before i get into this, i would like to recognize eric trager. he is a fellow penn graduate. it is nice to see someone else from penn in this town doing this kind of work and doing it in a cutting edge and great way. i also want to recognize ambassador cohen, who had the hardest job from israel. as a testament to his character. it is interesting to me that when rob contacted me about doing this, he wanted to call the session egypt on the brink. not only does this have the benefit of being true yet again, but it is a particularly apt description of what we are likely to see in egypt for the foreseeable future. not only is it what we see with the future, but perfectly consistent with egypt's modern political history. in the central drama and egypt's history. it could digress a little bit in the struggle. because i think they reflect well on what is likely to happen. it is clear that what we are seeing now at this moment is a reflection of the fact that no party, not the muslim brotherh
and progress. lord, change our lawmakers not from what they were but toward what they really are -- generous, wise and responsible stewards of your bountiful grace. keep us from becoming a country that wants to feel good rather than be good, as you empower us to live worthy of our forebears who sacrificed so much for freedom. we pray in your great name. amen. the presiding officer: please join me in reciting the pledge of allegiance to the flag. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the presiding officer: the clerk will read a communication to the senate. the clerk: washington, d.c., december 20, 2012. to the senate: under the provisions of rule 1, paragraph 3, of the standing rules of the senate, i hereby appoint the honorable sherrod brown, a senator from the state of ohio, to perform the duties of the chair. signed: patrick j. leahy, president pro tempore. mr. reid: mr. president? the presiding officer: the majority leader is recognized. mr. reid: i ask
could see the reflection of it in england. military and power in the monarch, property and the lord, member in the comments, independent judiciary. so i thought, well, maybe it's not so easy to get a patent, even though i said it's a brilliant implementation. but federalism, really a unique kind of -- and other place i said it's a unique contribution of the framers to political theory. the framers had the idea that you have more freedom, if you have two governments instead of one, you almost get intellectual whiplash. why more freedom if you have two governments? now, many students of federalism as being a brilliant administrative device, this was the biggest landmass since the roman empire to attempt anything like government, and it took, what, six weeks to get from new england to south carolina. so if you're a business person, an astute manager, you have territorial divisions, in a certain sense. in the '60s and '70s when european states persons and scholars were looking at american federalism to see if they could find some lessons for the european union, many of them thought of t
